The Beginning, The End and A Whole Lot of Memories..

Wow can you believe how fast the time has gone? It's finally sweet summertime and that means a whole lot of fun ahead! Exams went well, and I am officially finished with school for the year! Whoo! I got all of my stuff out of my room, and now I'm in the process of unpacking, reorganizing and repacking for some travel that is coming up! One thing that I was thinking about as I loaded plastic bins full of cards, notebooks, clothing and photos is how much I learned in just one year. The girl who walked in at the beginning of
August...

is not the same girl who walked out in May....

I've come out smarter (I can now classify fruits, write proper business memos and tell you all about the history of Christian theology), wiser (spiritually) and full of new dreams, goals and accomplishments. I feel as if I have grown up a lot and also fallen deeper in love with my Heavenly Father. I cannot even begin to tell you of all the things he has done and revealed to me in this past year..I would not have enough space to name each and every moment that he came and made his presence known to me.

As I wrapped up the cables, cords and clothes for the summer, I sifted through the sweet memories, the hard and trying situations that caused me to grow stronger, and the times I laughed so hard with my friends that my stomach hurt afterwards.

Here's a few things that I learned this year:
I hope you also have learned much from this past year!

A few things of interest..Mother's Day is tomorrow! Make sure you let your mom know how thankful you are to have her in your life! My mom has done so much for me, and is always a support and encouragement to me! I am so blessed to have her for my mom! Love you, mom! :)
Since it's summer again, I've gotten back into the habit of making a lot of fresh fruit smoothies..yum! It is so yummy and refreshing on a hot day! I got a book full of good recipes, so I'll just share a quick one that I recently enjoyed!

Perky Pineapple
Needed: handful of crushed ice
2 bananas
1 Cup Pineapple and its juice
1/2 cup plain yogurt

Put all ingredients into a blender or food processor and process until smooth!

Well, I hope that you're enjoying your summer vacation (if you're out of school already), and make sure you're journaling all of the fun things that happen! Well, I'm off to finish my packing...I cannot wait to tell you of all my adventures that arise on my travels!

Blessings and Sweet summertime happenings,

Candice
